Event description

Description

‘Three Acres And A Cow’ connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with current issues like fracking, our housing crisis and food sovereignty movement via the Enclosures, English Civil War, Irish Land League and Industrial Revolution, drawing a compelling narrative through the radical people’s history of England in folk song, stories and poems.

Part TED talk, part history lecture, part folk club sing-a-long, part poetry slam, part storytelling session… Come and share in these tales as they have been shared for generations.

This event is part of Thrifty Thursdays – a series of free events running alongside the current exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’. Taking the exhibition as a starting point to explore themes relating to the rural, each week a different artist, writer, gardener, land-worker, academic or performer will join us. The bar will be open before the event from 5.45 pm until 6.30 pm. Please note, the main exhibition will be closed, however the Bourgeois Gallery, which is the final room in the exhibition, will be open.

This is a free event, however booking is required. The performance is 2 hours long with an interval
